We continue to have a great week at Wilderness Escape VBS. Day 3 – Wednesday included a presentation by Moses about how God helps us. To illustrate this he told the story of how the Israelites battled the Amalekites (Exodus 17:8-16). Aaron and Hur helped Moses keep his staff raised above his head during the battle. God’s help for us includes the help of other people in our lives.
Another special feature of Wilderness Escape VBS is the “Israelite Camp”. This is housed in our fellowship hall. The room is set up with tents and special vendors who help the students enter into the world of the ancient Israelites. There are various shops where the children can engage with adults who help them get their food, do crafts, and learn about how various people struggled with their faith in the time of the Exodus. In addition to the food there have been six shops:
Wilderness Escape VBS uses a variety of learning experiences to help the children engage with the message of God’s goodness for us.
